McKenzie was the Hokies’ third tailback in the game. He enrolled at Virginia Tech in January, but missed all of spring practice while recovering from a torn ACL suffered last fall. But he played well enough against the Tribe to pace the Hokies to a 222-yard rushing day.

“I was a little bit nervous,” McKenzie said. “It was a blessing to be back out there after that injury. I’m feeling a lot better. I’m still rehabbing, but any time I’m out there playing, I don’t feel it. I’m just in the zone and trying to make plays any time I touch the ball.”

Carpenter provided all the scoring for the Tribe. He hit field goals of 36, 29 and 44 yards.

William & Mary finished with just 193 yards of total offense. Tailback Mikal Abdul-Saboor led the way with 85 yards on 10 carries — 40 on one run. Cluley completed 8 of 21 for 108 yards and was sacked four times.
